Girl Scout cookies help girls do great things PDF Print E-mail

The wait is almost over. On Feb. 15, Girl Scout cookies will go on sale. Girls will have all the favorite cookies in hand when they come knocking on doors.
The small donations made by their customers translate to positive, life-changing experience for girls, funding for local troops and a lasting investment in the community.
The Girl Scout Cookie Program is the largest girl-led business in the country and generates immeasurable benefits for the girls, their councils and communities nationwide. Girls set cookie goals to support their chosen activities for the year, to fund community service and leadership projects, to attend summer camp, to travel to destinations near and far and to provide events for girls in their community.
Why Girl Scout Cookies?
